Any chance that the "Black Cat" Scania's and 698-700 will get WIFI?, all but the 38, 61, 238 and the 700 have WIFI at Deptford..... haven't included the 9 as the Citaro's do have it but the Scania's don't.... likely that'll change, where service 9 won't have WIFI at all.

Thanks Dan  Big Grin

Given the Hybrids tendency to well...break, I’m guessing that B7s return as back up spares?
Wistfully stuck in the 90s

Yeah, the Omnidekka's there are cascading to Stanley, which I think you're glad about

Somewhat old news now, but to aid with the updating of the news, I have listed the missing taglines below attaching photos where possible:

633: '35 Million Miles' tagline replaced with the 'Recharge Your Batteries' variant
647: 'Never Miss Your Stop'
4966: '35 Million Miles'
5205: 'Recharge Your Batteries'
5206: 'Recharge Your Batteries'
5207: 'Never Miss Your Stop'
5214: 'Stay Connected'
5216: 'No Change?'
5217: 'No Change?'
5451: 'Stay Connected'

5452 had the 'Stay Connected' tagline too but lost this when it gained its 'BIG days out' advertisement.

Oh well, that isn't bad, wonder how many are due.

There shouldn't be many old deckers left in the fleet for Go North East to replace.

Once again on my phone, so can't have a look.

Plenty of 03 omnidekkas!!, are 15 year old buses suitable for front line service?

When will the Scania's start to leave Hexham?

They already have started to leave Hexham.

4942/43 were the first to transfer
5210 has now transferred to Riverside
5229 has now left Hexham - still at Saltmeadows Road at the moment having been repainted into fleet livery.
